Brimscombe & Thrupp Parish Council

Road Closure - Brimscombe Hill

Brimscombe Hill is to be closed again - this time for Ash Dieback work. It will be from 10th to 21st September, between the hours of 07:00 and 19:00 daily, excluding weekends. The closure will extend from the junction with Swells Hill up to Burleigh, with the diversion up through Walls Quarry, through Burleigh up to the A419.

On behalf of Gloucestershire County Council, the adjoining landowner National Trust and will shortly be carrying out essential works at the above location in order to remove unsafe trees infected with Ash Dieback.

Ash Dieback disease causes Ash trees to become unsafe, and the tree could shed limbs or collapse on to the road causing harm and injury. This work must take place for health and safety reasons, to protect road users and pedestrians, and make sure the carriageway remains clear of debris.

We will be carrying out essential tree works at the above location for health and safety reasons to protect users of highways and county council land as part of our Ash Dieback project. To ensure the safety of you and our work force we have, under Sections 14, 15 & 16 of the Road Traffic Act 1984 as amended, made a Temporary Traffic Order to close the road.

Due to the type of activities required with tree felling and maintenance works, the road closure can cover an area greater than where work is taking place. This is to allow safe movement and placement of machinery and material.
